ADK Lakes Theatre Festival

ADK Theatre Festival presents:

The Cure: An Adirondack Story by Frederic Glover
Director: George Cordes
Assistant Director/Production Designer: Kent Streed
Stage Manager: Peggy Orman

The new play written by Canton, NY, playwright Frederic Glover and inspired by actual people and events in Saranac Lake, NY, during the summer of 1936. A writer, Margaret, from New York City is seeking “the cure” for her case of tuberculosis at the famous Saranac Lake health resort. Her story intertwines with the life and struggles of Dr. Edward Trudeau, a driven, deeply compassionate man who devoted himself to finding a cure for the dread disease during the late 1800s. The stories of Margaret and Dr. Trudeau combine to celebrate the importance of community in healing and the many sides of the natural world while emphasizing the struggle to transcend a deadly pandemic.

Lonnie Ford as E.L. Trudeau, Laura-Jean Swanson as Lottie Trudeau, Jason Brill as Dr. Loomis, Laura Farrell as Margaret, and Sean Orman as Frank (More casting information to come!)

Two of our performances will also feature the Cure Porch on Wheels from Historic Saranac Lake.
